Slim, your vastly overestimating “prominent elders”. Thats pure local politics. No such thing in the big picture of the org. And in order for this to have any significant impact the names or names being protected would have to be branch level.
its very dicey legal ground. If they release lists of suspected pedo’s they also potentially release information regarding victims. They make it easy for 1+1 identity of victims who may not want that information made public.
Bear in mind, as much as it wont be popular to say, these pedos are only suspected pedos, not convicted in a court of law. Of course one of the reasons they arnt convicted in court is due to wt pressure, so round and round we go. My end point being, It would be unconscionable to have potentially innocent people branded as pedo’s in the release of wt names. Cult star chamber proceedings are a joke as countless experiances show, many recorded right here on this forum. Just because someone was df for being a pedo dosent make it true. Which is exactly why the wt has no business investigating it...
and as for the ARC... it was a toothless dog from the start. People are asking how the wt will respond.. by doing exactly nothing. Why would they??? The ARC has zero authority. None. The ARC can recommend all day and piss and moan and write reports and it amounts to nothing. They have zero authority to compel any change. Any good that comes from it will be as a result of publicity and the spot light that was shown.. but without legal teeth the wt is laughing.
